Newcastle Healthcare Technology Lab
Healthcare Technology is a major activity within Newcastle University. There is growing evidence demonstrating the impact of individual engineering and physical sciences disciplines on healthcare. Joint replacement, regenerative medicine, simulation and medical training and surgical innovation all have major contributions from engineering and advanced materials. Modern medicine and healthcare rely heavily on engineering to deliver improved prevention, diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of disease, including medical imaging, surgery, cardiac implants, tissue engineering, neural engineering, mobile health, healthcare IT and independent living.
Our cross-disciplinary research is embedded within the medical sciences (Neuroscience, Cell and molecular biology, cellular medicine, genetic medicine) as well as Engineering (Mechanical, Electronic, Chemical), Science (computing, chemistry) and humanities (ethics, public understanding).
